Dr. Penunuri's Care Philosophy
As a primary physician, I see myself as a partner in your health care. My goal is to achieve the well being of the patient as a whole. Understanding the patient's background, and getting to know the patient as a whole, allows me to provide the best care possible for the patient, and to formulate an individual plan of care for each of my patient's. I really believe that medicine is more than a science, it is an art form. I will spend as much time as needed to satisfy the patient's medical needs
